Default Installing Video Interface


Just purchased an interface and will be installing a back up camera and a video streaming receiver so that netflix, youtube, etc can be watched. My challenge is that I've picked a system which appears to need hardwiring, which I hadn't expected. I thought it would be plug and play.....so, does anyone recognize this set up and can offer advice? I've got a 2010 535i which has already proven to have weird wiring as compared to other LCI vehicles (combox retrofit was a PITA)

I'm clear on all the plug in wiring, but the bundle which goes to IR Navi, etc is where I get lost. Do I need to make a plug and play harness? Is this a repin of the current plug? I've attached the manual and details about the interface.

Thanks for the help, appreciated!

I have a similar model,

I think it was only if using an aftermarket Navi Unit.

Other than that, the unit suppose to still function as normal

That makes sense, but only if the interface communicates through the LCD input/output. The manual shows a variety of system controls through iDrive and I don't see any other way it could work. The other connections appear to be non-comm.
